One of the QUEST Center’s core goals is providing scientists with tools, services and resources to break down barriers to translation and thus conduct high-quality, reproducible research. In the context of the new Charité/BIH Wellcome Trust Translational Partnership, we are delighted to introduce you to the SPOKES Program: SPOKES aims to create traction and stimulate grass root activities, focusing on quality, reproducibility, generalizability and validity, in turn improving the overall culture of translation. 

SPOKES Wellcome Trust Funded Translational Partnership Fellowship (SWTFTPF)

The first cohort of the SPOKES Wellcome Trust Funded Translational Partnership Fellowship wrapped up in November 2021.

SPOKES Wellcome Trust Funded Think Tank (SWTFTT)

The SPOKES Wellcome Trust Funded Think Tank (SWTFTT) is a group of ~10 early career researchers (ECRs) from the BIH research community who will work together over the period of one year to develop, conduct and complete a project that aims to improve the quality of translational research in Berlin. The SWTFTT team will receive a grant of up to 20,000 Euros for the development and execution of their project. Selection will be based on applicants’ previous engagement with improving research, project ideas, commitment to the Think Tank and possible role in the group. The funds allocated to the Think Tank may be used for organizing events, developing resources, communicating about the project and so on.
